In between the horrific news of bombings , insane shootings & global mayhem there is some alarming news of a different kind that  may affect many gardeners with compost heaps that get a dose of flour based materials  put in it as kitchen scraps . ..evidence being provided  as follows in " The Times "  newspaper ( on my Kindle ).  It's all about a common mould that has modified itself into a drug resistant form .

In the ever lasting battle to keep crop production going against insect and mould spore infections  farmers all round the world have resorted to spraying  their brassica , grain & legume crops with chemicals that combat mould so the crops aren't ruined . It has worked well for 20 or so years...……. till fairly recently .

It now appears that a common wheat mould has become resistant to the spraying , this looks like being a massive problem in the not so distant future & by the looks of it , it's  not just in the UK but also the USA and all other countries in the world  . .  For the resistant mould spores are now so common that almost every compost heap will also have the fungicide resistant spores in it especially those with flour based kitchen scraps in it .

  The fungus  has claimed the lives of at least 15 people who were gardeners  within the UK in the last year .
It seems the folk were immune system challenged and got a chest infection that would not respond to any antibiotic .   They died  and the autopsies showed this mould was the cause of their deaths .  Normal anti fungicide human meds were tried in other cases  and none worked .

  The article also carries  the comments of one woman who said  I have had a large portion of one lung removed   to slow it down but it is still spreading within me  I will die because of it .


This has big implications  for older people who buy in ready made composts that use recycled household products as the concentrations of mould appear to be greater in the products.

So perhaps is the time to learn to forsake any  mixed source recycled composts and  stick rigidly to Mels original  formula for his mix .

These stories have been around for a number of years - I remember seeing similar articles when I was still farming - but, I am not sure that properly heated compost would support or spread the fungi.

I recently saw an article on the Explore Health site that discussed how this has been a problem in China and Latin America since first discovered in the 1970's. "Infection with sporotrichosis is rare. While it seems to be more common in Latin America, China, and other parts of the world, it’s been estimated that in the United States, the disease occurs in less than one in a million people every year."
